Transportation Company Succeeds with Effort to “Ship” Case to Kane County. Illinois Supreme Court Denies Plaintiff’s Petition for Appeal.

October 4, 2021

Several weeks ago, we reported that the First District Appellate Court had ruled in favor of our transportation client, allowing our client to transfer its case on forum non conveniens grounds from Cook County to Kane County, where an accident involving one of the company’s trucks and its driver occurred.  Following that ruling, the plaintiff petitioned the Illinois Supreme Court for leave to appeal.  Last week, the court denied plaintiff’s petition.  The case will go forward in Kane County.  Johnson & Bell Shareholders, Gregory D. Conforti and Julie J. Busch, represent the transportation company in the underlying matter.  Johnson & Bell Shareholder, Garrett L. Boehm, Jr., represented the company during the appeal process.
